COVID-19 Facts

Living in the "New Normal"

Despite innovations in modern medicine like COVID-19 vaccinations, we are still living in the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the media is not filled with surging statistics, cases have not vanished, especially in our county. For this reason, the FRN has been awarded a COVID-19 disparities grant to aid in keeping our community safe and educated.

Still feeling sick and lethargic?

Some people who have been infected with the COVID-19 virus can experience long-term effects from their infection known as post-COVID conditions (PCC) or long COVID. These conditions can last weeks, months, or longer.

Emerging research has shown that 1 in 5 people who have contracted the virus will experience symptoms of long COVID. Current research has found over 200 symptoms. 

The FRN is currently developing resource guides to update the community on this new diagnosis. 

 

COVID-19 Disparities Grant

Title of the grant: 2021, Addressing COVID-19 Health Disparities in Rural Areas of West Virginia and among Racial and Ethnic Minorities of West Virginia

The Marion County Family Resource Network has recently received funding through this COVID-19 grant to tackle various disparities present in our county. Our main focus is on rural areas in Marion County as well as reaching racial and ethnic minorities. Our plan as a community resource center is to provide Marion County residents with accurate information about vaccines, testing availability, and COVID-19 facts relevant to our county and state.
